Deep Relaxation from Five Good Minutesby Jeffrey Brantley, MD and Wendy Millstine

How often do you wish you could calm down or just relax? Everyone has a built-in capacity for deep relaxation, but they may not appreciate or know how to access it. This practice will teach you a way to connect with your own ability for deep inner relaxation.

  1. Breathe mindfully for about a minute.
  2. Set your intention. For example, “May this practice of deep relaxation bring me health and ease.”
  3. Focus mindfully on the sensations of your breath, in and out.
  4. Imagine that you are inhaling calm and peace. With each
    out-breath, exhale any unnecessary tension in your body.
  5. Breathe this way for a few more minutes. Let the actual flow of your breath support you, bringing in peace and carrying out tension.
  6. End by opening your eyes and moving gently.
